In 2016, CBU articulated its vision for the next five years and outlined the pathway towards achieving this vision. Pathways to Success: CBU Strategic Plan provides the framework for the university to grow, thrive, and ever more fully realize our mission of fostering "academic excellence in a range of programs to prepare students from all faiths and backgrounds for careers and lives informed by the Lasallian values of faith, service, and community."

The strategic plan developed from a collaborative effort that solicited ideas and input from virtually all stakeholders in the university. See the brief overview of the history of the strategic plan for further information about the development of the strategic plan.
On October 7, 2016, the strategic plan was approved by the Board of Trustees. The Strategic Plan Steering Committee then identified those initiatives that were priorities for the first phase of the plan. The Steering Committee identified one or two “Champions” for each initiative; people who have the expertise and energy to make each initiative a success. The Champions, in turn, have convened working committees to outline the steps necessary to achieve the initiative. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the first phase of the plan by exploring the Strategy Vision Map, which has been updated to reflect progress as of August 1, 2018, as the first phase of the plan has drawn to a close.
We are now in the second phase of the implementation of the plan. The process of identifying the next set of initiatives is well underway. The strategic plan is a guide to realizing our vision, but it is not a straitjacket. The Steering Committee meets monthly to monitor progress, retool existing initiatives if necessary, and identify new initiatives.
